Solaris Farms has completed taking peony orders for the 2018 season.  Thank you to all that have ordered.  Our new offering for 2019 will appear on this website in January 2019.  All peonies are shipped as dormant divisions and grafted plants in late September and early October, the appropriate time for planting.  Please see our cultural pages for planting and care instructions.  We do not ship peonies in the spring.  Order early for best selection.  Please note that lutea hybrids typically do not grow over 4’ in Wisconsin due to winter kill of stems, but reliably regrow and bloom on basal buds.  They may grow taller in more reasonable climates.   Sizes:  (1) 3 Year Grafted Plants are often beginning to grow their own roots, but still require some time on the nurse root.  They will likely bloom within a year or two of planting.  (2) 4 and 5 Year Grafted plants are larger and will likely bloom within a year. They will also likely have their own roots.  (3) Divisions from Large Plants almost always have their own roots and are most likely to bloom within a year.  Note:  Larger plants and divisions often take a year longer to establish compared to young grafts.  Note:  Solaris Farms uses non-adventitious rootstock on our grafts, thus herbaceous growth will not be seen or compete with the woody portion of the plant.

5 Year Grafted Plants $60.00
Hanakisoi. (Floral Rivalry).  Chugai Nursery.  1910.  Japanese suffruticosa. Large semi-double to double medium pink flowers.  Flowers are creped and ruffled.   Outer edges of the petals fade more quickly than the interior.  The large flowers are held upright by sturdy stems and never fail to put on a great show. Cream stigmas, sheath and stamens.  Plants have much red coloration in their leaves.  A sturdy grower that is thought to be one of the best pink suffruticosas by many gardeners.  Fertile both ways and creates some wonderful looking seedlings.  Blooms in the early part of the woody peony season.

Hatsugarasu.  Japan.  1929.  Japanese suffruticosa.  Also known as Ubatama.  A very darkly pigmented red single flower.  Given a good growing location it can attain heights of 5 to 6 feet and present many blooms.  It is sensitive to overly wet conditions, so be sure to plant it in a well drained location.   This plant was heavily used in hybridizing F1 lutea hybrids by Saunders and Daphnis during their breeding days.  A very nice Japanese suffruticosa and collectors plant.
3 Year Grafted Plants $80.00
Heart of Darkness.  Saunders.  1948.  F2 generation lutea hybrid.  Very deep black-red single flowers  that are lightly ruffled.  Dark red sheath and stamens.  Bright red stigmas.  Foliage is fine and deeply lobed.  Creates a large mound shaped plant with many ground shoots.  Reportedly a F2 of Saunders.  No seeds, but we have noted pollen.  A collectors plant for historic value and dark flowers. Short supply and much in demand.

3 Year Grafted Plants $50.00
Hephestos.  (God of Fire) Daphnis.  1977.   Advanced generation lutea hybrid.  Large double to semi-double, brick red with ruffled petals and nice fragrance.  The unfurling buds are magnificent (look like rose buds) and the flowers are without peers.  Red stigmas, purple sheath and maroon stamens.  Simply one of the best hybrids. Plants become large over time and spread wider than high.  Bloom is heavy with most stems producing flowers.  Makes a well rounded shrub suitable for landscaping.  Plants are very rounded and produce many shoots, creating a good landscape specimen.  To 4' in Wisconsin.  One of my favorites.  Sadly, no fertility.  Blooms in the later part of the woody peony season.  (Thunderbolt x F2-A)  These will be nice three year old plants, but Hephestos lags in size from other cultivars after grafting-thus a little smaller than usual.

Helene Martin.  Cayeux.  1986.  F1 lutea hybrid.  Beautiful soft cream single blossoms with undertones of softest pink. Small, delicate red-pink basal flares. Most of the blossoms have a double row of large broad petals.  Cream sheath and stigmas.  Reddish-pink stamens.  A gorgeous flower that is carried on plants that have finely cut leaves.  Foliage and stems are tinted in red to varying degrees.  Robust grower that produces many stems.  Foliage can become poor later in the season.  Easy to grow.  Reportedly has fertility, we've not experienced this to date.  F1 lutea hybrid.  (potanini trolloides x Gessekai)
3 Year Grafted Plants $50.00
  Saunders.  1948.  F1 lutea hybrid.  Single old rose pink with yellow undertones and deep pink veins.  A lovely flower and excellent plant.  Stem hardiness is excellent and blooms are carried well above foliage or to the side.  Some seed fertility noted.   Plants are good upright growers.  Foliage is finely cut. Parentage unknown.
3 Year Grafted Plants $50.00
High Noon.  Saunders.  1952.  F1 lutea hybrid.  Clear yellow, generally semi-double with small raspberry flares.   Light yellow stigmas, sheath and stamens.  An older hybrid that deserves attention.  Plants are very upright and extremely vigorous.  Flowers are carried on long stems and bloom sporadically throughout spring for us.  Flowers are often produced again in the fall season, after a second flush of growth.  Excellent fast grower that becomes tall over time. To 5 feet or more in Wisconsin.   Seed fertility noted!  (lutea x suffruticosa)
Own Root Division Plants $60.00
Ice Age.  Saunders/Seidl.  1996.  F1 lutea hybrid mutation.  White-cream with brushed pink flares. A mutation from Age of Gold selected by Bill Seidl many years ago. Same flower and plant form as Age of Gold.   Excellent vigorous growth and a wonderful shrub both in and out of bloom. Produces many ground shoots.   Plants are easily divided after 4 to 6 years.  Some reversion to Age of Gold has been noted on a couple of plants, but it is relatively stable.  Same seed fertility as Age of Gold. F1 lutea hybrid.  Parentage unknown.

Iphigenia.  (Daughter of Agamemnon).  Daphnis.  1977.  Advanced generation lutea hybrid.  Single to semi- double, two rows of petals-inner row rise upward, bright clear red.  Pink-red sheath and stigmas.  Stamens are maroon and anthers are waxy light yellow.  Flowers present themselves by facing the viewer and are borne on sturdy stems.  Extremely floriferous, rivaling suffruticosa flower production. Plants are mounded and do not become tall here in Wisconsin, but may in warmer climates .  Very good for us in the open field and as a landscape plant near our house.  No fertility.   A favorite.  Blooms during the later part of the woody season.  (BC-2 x Daioh)
4 Year Grafted Plants $200.00
KC Red.  Seidl/Bremer.  2018.  Advanced generation lutea hybrid.  Semi double flowers of red-pink coloration.   Petals are nicely notched and ruffled along their edges.  Sheath and filaments are red and stamens carry bright yellow pollen.  Bill's seedling number for this plant was SH138 and it has been previously distributed under this number and the name 'KC Red'.  In the late 1990's Bill was culling plants in his garden and gifted 'KC Red' as a cull to Kris Casey, a dear friend of Bill's. Bill later saw the plant growing in Kris' garden and decided he would like it back in his garden.  So it happened and Bill began to breed with the plant, only to find that is was exceptionally fertile and quite beautiful.   Flower carriage is very good and bloom is reliable here in Wisconsin.   KC Red is perhaps one of our best advanced generation lutea hybrids and is always in high demand for fertility and beauty.  Plants are healthy and easy growers.  KC Red's parentage is Seidl #15 x unknown.  Seidl #15 comes from a cross of (Golden Experience x Chinese Dragon), which we hope to register in the future.  One plant per order.

Leda.  (Queen of Sparta, Mother of Caster & Pollux)  Daphnis.  1977.  Advanced generation lutea hybrid.  Pink with light red streaks going through each petal. Semi-double. Two rows of petals, well formed and rounded.  Red stamens, white sheath and cream stigmas.  Large and beautiful, flowers are carried outward.  Plants produce woody stems, but spread outward, rather than upward.  Excellent.  No fertility noted, but rumor has it that seeds have been produced in Europe.     (Kokoman x BC-2)
